THE WORLD OF THE MOST CULT DIRECTOR IN AMERICAN CINEMA: DAVID LYNCH

LYNCH HIGHWAY

From Tuesday 17th January  “LYNCH HIGHWAY”

THE WORLD OF THE MOST CULT DIRECTOR IN AMERICAN CINEMA: DAVID LYNCH

Soggettiva Gallery presents the new LYNCH HIGHWAY exhibition dedicated to the universe of the famous American director David Lynch (Missoula, 1946)

With a Lifetime Achievement Golden Lion awarded at the 63rd Venice Film Festival (2006) and an Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement (2019), David Lynch is one of the most significant and acclaimed figures in the elite of American cinema. Films such as The Elephant Man (1980), Dune (1984) and Mulholland Drive (2001) marked the stages of a successful career which, over the last few decades, has been able to garner both critical acclaim and applause from the general public.

WORKS OF EIGHTEEN INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS

David Lynch’s imagination through the gazes and reinterpretations of eighteen artists, emerging and not, of international origin. Fully meeting the Soggettiva Gallery style, the works of art that make up the LYNCH HIGHWAY exhibition give back to the visitor the personal vision of each artist, invited to interpret one or more films from the director’s rich production by providing their own unprecedented expressive reworking. From the melancholic snapshot that George Townley offers of Mulholland Drive to the sharp black and white spiral with which Przemek Debowski evokes Dune; from the pop atmospheres studied by Jeffrey Everett to interpret Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks to the rural landscape with which Eva Planet pays homage to The straight story 

THE “COLLECTIVE” CHORAL PROJECT AT THE START.

On this occasion, the new collaboration activated between Soggettiva Gallery and Milano PrintMakers kicks off, which takes place in the debut of the COLLETTIVA project: from the origin of the idea to the concrete production of the object.

COLLECTIVE debuts as part of the LYNCH HIGHWAY exhibition with a multi-voiced interpretation of The Elephant Man, which returns all the complexity of David Lynch’s work in a delicate reinterpretation of the theme of wonder given by the unveiling of an opening curtain.

LOST HIGHWAY RESTORATION

The Soggettiva Gallery tribute comes to life in conjunction with the debut in cinemas of the re-edition of the movie Lost Highways (1997) restored in 4K by The Criterion Collection under the supervision of David Lynch and distributed by the Cineteca di Bologna.

DAVID LYNCH AND STEVEN SPIELBERG TOGETHER IN “THE FABELMANS”

Also in the gallery are the works from the exhibition “The Spielbergs” (until 11.2.23) recalling the cameo interpretation by David Lynch (where he plays an extraordinary John Ford) in Spielberg’s latest award-winning work “The Fabelsman”, after the Golden Globe, in the running for the Oscars.
